9780064452014: Gravity Is a Mystery (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2)

What goes up must come down.

Everybody knows that. But what is it that pulls everything from rocks to rockets toward the center of the earth? It's gravity. Nobody can say exactly what it is, but gravity is there, pulling on everything, all the time. With the help of an adventurous scientist and his fun-loving dog, you can read and find out about this mysterious force.

About the Author:

Franklyn M. Branley was the originator of the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series and the author of close to 150 popular books about scientific topics for young readers of all ages. He was Astronomer Emeritus and former Chairman of the American Museum of Natural History-Hayden Planetarium.



Edward Miller has illustrated A Drop of Blood and What Happens to a Hamburger? for the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. He lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3 This update of the 1970 edition remains a succinct and lively presentation of a baffling scientific phenomenon. Although Branley never defines gravity, its effect on life is clearly shown in terms easily comprehensible to its target audience. Madden's cartoon-like illustrations are specifically wedded to the scientific information presented by Branley. The main revision is in the addition of more varied and vibrant color to Madden's animated illustrations, heightening their humor and visually enhancing the verbal explanations. The major change in the text is a comment about one's weight on Pluto, which was based on conjecture in the original edition, and which is stated as fact here. Gravity All Around (McGraw-Hill, 1963; o.p.) by Tillie S. Pine and Joseph Levine offers similar information, but the presentation is not as well-suited to the very young.
